Fanney Khan – Was it able to create superstar magic on the silver screen?


Today marks the day when we have three Bollywood films from different genre hitting the screen. It includes Fanney Khan, Mulk, and Karwaan. All these films have a different subject and highlight different problems that affect our society. Coming to Fanney Khan, then the film is studded with casts like Anil Kapoor, Rajkumar Rao, Aishwarya Ra, Divya Dutta, Pihu Sand and others.

Movie Review:  Well, Fanny Khan is the story of a father and his incomplete dream of becoming a great singer. He wants his daughter Lata to become a superstar. Lata played by Pihu Sand does not fit in the parameters of being a superstar in terms of her look. Though she has a beautiful voice at the same time, her weight becomes an issue. People insult her and taunt her because of her weight. From here starts the story, how Anil Kapoor helps her daughter become a pop star.

In this move, he receives help from his ally Rajkumar Rao. They decide to kidnap pop singer Baby Singh essayed by Aishwarya Rai. All-in-all the concept looks great, the film has big names like Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai, and Rajkumar Rao. It also has some peppy numbers, and commendably Anil Kapoor looks excellent. But somewhere in the film, the storyline weakens and loses the grip. Rajkumar Rao is excellent with his comic timings and innocence. Aishwarya looks impeccable as a pop singer.

When it comes to the acting front, then the young girl steals the show. She has perfectly essayed the role of an annoying teenager who can never come in terms with her parents. What becomes a bit difficult to digest is when Baby Singh (Aishwarya Rai) is kidnapped. In the entire sequence, you cannot find the kidnapee being afraid. Certain things like a talent show, kidnapping of the pop star, ransom, etc. sound a bit too over the board, but at the same time, the film also leaves an important message about body shaming. Anil Kapoor is just outstanding in the film. To sum, it’s a decent film which can go an watch. If not anything, you should see this film for Anil Kapoor.
